SAN ANTONIO -- The Memphis Grizzlies were not celebrating a moral victory after their Game 2 loss to the San Antonio Spurs to go down 2-0 in the Western Conference Finals. There was little to no "Hey, we played better," no "wev'e got some momentum." There was only the shaking of heads and the grit of teeth as the team tried to answer how they felt after their miraculous comeback effort fell short. After getting blown out in Game 1, Memhis came out flat again to start Game 2, and it wound up costing them the game, arguably. That was the refrain from Memphis. "Once gain, we didn't get out to the start we wanted," Grizzlies PG Mike Conley said after the game.
